Delightful Day Trips to Watch the Leaves Change
September 10, 2021 • Denver Area, CO
Science can explain how leaves change color, but most of us just want to enjoy the gorgeous hues of autumn without thinking too hard. Basically, you should know that leaves change when it gets cold - and it gets cold at the highest elevations first. That means that, in Colorado, you have from mid-September to the end of October to plan just the right day trip for seeing the fall splendor. Sure, we’re all busier than squirrels gathering nuts for the winter, but any of these beautiful locales can make the perfect day trip to fit your schedule.
